1030 deck bearing

It sounds like the bearing is going bad in the deck, is this part of what is referred to as the spindle assembly?

Just pulled your parts list and this is the 30'' single blade deck correct?
It could be the bearing or something bent and rubbing against the deck.
The complete spindle assembly runs $ 52.26 Bearings by themselves run $ 8.65ea
Try pulling the belt off from the pulley and spin the blade, if you hear a growling noise its a bad bearing

I also noticed a ridiculous amount of slack in the deck belt, it is a wonder it worked at all.

I can get you the parts if you need them, could have them here in less than a week

We are going to pull the deck out from under it to sharpen the blade, and check things out.
